It is December 21st and days away from Christmas. Crazy busy and crazy season. Trying to remember the reason for this season. Trying to find the peace and contentment. Between working full time, as most are, and prepping for Christmas, the shopping and so forth, I feel like I finally found a piece of "ahhhhh".

Friday nights are our "date night". With Friday being clean the house in the morning, then rush to work, to finish out the week of undone work.
I had the thought of going to Madonna Inn for dinner, since we have unused gift certificates. But I called to make reservations, and not surprised, they did not have an opening until 8. A bit late for us. So I cleaned the house, went to work and closed up and went home. We still decided to go for a cocktail at the bar, as they also serve from the steak house and the cafe. We happened on 2 empty chairs, perfect for spectator watching. Enjoyed some margaritas and local sausage and steak salad.
Then, what I was waiting for, the band started up. They have a great dance floor, where you will always see older couples floating around the floor, from an era gone by. We paid our tab, and thanks to a few dance classes we had years ago, twirled around the floor to a couple of numbers.
The Inn is magical at Christmas. A perfect time to go, if you have never gone, it is an icon of our city.
It was the perfect end to a week, a perfect beginning of "ahhh" Christmas.

Thank you, my love, for a perfect evening.
